The Democratic Party attempted to make an in-your-face statement to President Trump at his first State of the Union address by bringing dozens of DREAMers as their guests.
The public display of opposition, following upon the Democrats’ defeat during shutdown negotiations on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, an extra-constitutional executive action decreed by former President Obama to protect DREAMers, the children of illegal immigrants, was not expected to draw a retort from the president on the national stage.
But … this is Donald Trump we’re talking about. Of course, he had the perfect retort (or at least, the perfect retort to make the Democrat Party loyal furious.)
“Americans are dreamers, too.” Pres. Trump on his duty, and the duty of all elected officials, to defend Americans’ “right to the American dream.” https://t.co/wdGSMPKty8 #SOTU pic.twitter.com/WuMmnUwamE

“Americans are dreamers, too.”
It was a line delivered deftly and matter-of-factly. Its resonance throughout the political sphere was nonetheless remarkable.
Americans are dreamers too. #SOTU

"Americans are dreamers too" is a smart line.

“My sacred duty is to defend Americans and their right to the American dream. And Americans are dreamers too.” Not just a home run; a grand-slam!

Ouch. That's gotta sting the lawless Dems …

“Americans are dreamers too” is why President Trump is so remarkable. It shifts focus from a small group to the whole nation.

President Trump’s first State of the Union was filled with memorable moments. But no line is more memorable than the president’s case for the entire nation: Americans are dreamers, too.
It is an homage to the forgotten men and women who got the president elected. It pays tribute to our American heritage, including all the immigrants who legally came to this nation and bravely strove to build a better future for themselves and their children.
